The Miami Heat acquired Daequan Cook, a 2009 2nd round pick and cash for Jason Smith. The Heat took full advatage of the Sixers who had the hots for Smith. Cook is a 6’5″, 210 pound shooting guard/small forward. Cook played in 39 games last season for the Ohio State Buckeyes and he averaged 9.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.0 assist per game as a freshman. He also is a solid shooter as he hit 44.5% from the floor, 41.5% from three point range and 69.7% from the free throw line. Cook’s playing time as a rookie will hinge on how many of the Heat’s free agents they re-sign.
